Overview

Is it possible to abolish war? This is the fundamental question animating Winston Langley's new book. And, though many will disagree, it is a question to which the author is persuaded the answer is yes.

Far from being utopian ideals, Langley argues, international security and peace are attainable, as are their necessary corollaries: protection of the environment, conservation of natural resources, and fair enforcement of all human rights. To that end, he proposes a radically altered United Nations—one that will afford the effective system of global governance that we all desire.
